Car Seat Help!

So... We recently found out we are expecting #3! We just sold our van last year for a Subaru hehe. Anyone have luck getting three across in a Subaru Forrester? We will have a 9yo, 4yo and newbie this Nov. I need to figure out now if we need a new vehicle.

Lots of people have done three across in that vehicle. Your best bet would be to search "three across Subaru Forrester."

I know it can be done!!!

A big congratulations!

Congratulations!!

I've seen 3 in a Subaru. I know it can be done. Not sure on specifics. Is your 9 year old using anything?

Re: Car Seat Help!

Thanks. It seems completely impossible! Nine year old is still in a high back booster (she is eight now) and soon to be four year old is in a rear facing seat.... Soon to get flipped. Right now, there is barely space to put a purse between them hehe.

Re: Car Seat Help!

I'm sure someone has done it but I understand your worry. My son is in a backless booster and DD - 4y, forward facing 5pt and I can't fit another booster in the middle except the bubble which no one finds comfortable. Your likely need to buy new seats if not getting a new car. I hear the radions are slim and often fit 3 across.

I haven't kept up with boosters but are the bubble ones the lowest profile ones still? I find the backless boosters unnecessarily wide.

Re: Car Seat Help!

I guess she does not have to have a back for her booster if she stays to one side. The car seats have headrests..... It almost seems like it will be cheaper to get a new car than six new seats (my subaru and husbands truck). Kidding of corse, but i did just miss out on a killer deal of a van...... Black, black leather interior with wood grain, fully loaded, low miles, 2 dvd players, one older lady owner, selling for around $4000 😳. My subaru is worth more than that so i wish i could have been first for the van. It was kind of a no brainer.
